Singleton Rugby Union Club players, spectators and officials can participate with peace of mind thanks to a donation from Yancoal Australia’s Mount Thorley Warkworth (MTW) operation for a defibrillator system at the Club.
The defibrillator system is clearly marked and accessible on the wall next to the downstairs bar area, making it a safer environment for over 400 local people that visit Rugby Park each week.
John Tyne, Senior Vice President of The Singleton Rugby Club thanked Yancoal for the lifesaving system.
“We have a proud history at our Club and we are committed to ensuring our field is at a National playing level for our senior and junior rugby teams, women’s rugby team, over 30’s touch football teams, school football teams, fitness classes and family and community events,” said John.
“All members of the Club are very grateful for Yancoal’s kind donation. The installation of the defibrillator system is an invaluable asset to our Club. With this enhancement to our first aid equipment, we can now give someone in cardiac trouble the best chance of survival,” he added.
Mount Thorley Warkworth General Manager Jason McCallum recognised the importance of the new equipment to the football club.
“Sport unites a community and brings many of the local and the surrounding areas together and we are proud we have helped make it a safer environment for all with the installation of the defibrillator system,” said Jason.
The donation was part of the Yancoal Mount Thorley Warkworth (MTW) Community Support Program, which aims to make a positive difference in the local community and to the lives of the people who work and live in the areas it operates.
